You’re never too young to learn to love the arts!
The Arts Council of Martin County has worked to enhance and elevate arts education to residents of all ages since its founding in 1980.
This year, the Council launched a program geared toward the youngest demographic of our community: preschoolers.
Story Time in the Gallery is made possible by PNC Bank’s Arts Alive program, and will offer art-themed story time geared preschool children and their families on the last Thursday of each month
Story time at the Court House Cultural Center will last from 10-10:30 a.m., since this is the usual attention span of a toddler. Volunteer readers from Bridges Montessori, The Pine School and PNC Bank- among others - will select books that broadly celebrate the arts in some way.
Selections may involve a beautifully illustrated storybook with the reader explaining the medium used or it could be a ‘learn to count’ book using Van Gogh’s sunflowers. One volunteer plans to discuss the color wheel using books about rainbows.
Some readers will be dressing up: the first plans to dress up as an artist and the Treasure Coast Cosplayers will be in costume; however attire is optional.
Any adult accompanying the child will remain for the duration of the program and families are encouraged to linger, mingle, and enjoy the exhibit after the Story Time in the Gallery presentation in an effort to add to the sense of community that is centered around the arts.
Story Time Programs plays a significant role in the Arts Council’s vision of enhancing arts education and fostering appreciation of the arts to residents of every age. There is no cost for these special mornings and, although geared towards preschoolers, accompanied children of any age are welcome.
Don’t miss any of the exciting monthly presentations of Story Time Programs, all starting at 10 a.m. on the last Thursday of the month.
